Lilly joined RAGOM as a very pregnant Mom-to-be. A Good Samaritan found Lilly out in the country running in and out of a ditch. When she called out to Lilly she jumped into the delivery truck and fell asleep. Lilly was one very exhausted dog. The Good Samaritan took Lilly to a friends home in the country while she looked for Lilly's owner, but no one claimed her. This is when RAGOM happily offered to help Lilly. Lilly gave birth to 8 puppies on 9.18.15. Sadly one was stillborn, but the other 7 puppies are strong and healthy.
While at the Good Samaritans friends home we learned Lilly will catch free roaming chickens and that she can climb a horse gate. At my home she chases my cats so a home without cats would be best. I have a 4 foot chain link fence and and I'm sure she could jump that if she wanted to, but she knows her babies are in the house. A fenced in yard would be best because she likes to chase squirrels and when she does her recall gets lost as she's totally focused on catching the squirrel. Inside my home her recall is good and outside too if she's not busy with something else.
Lilly is probably a Lab/German Shorthaired Pointer mix. She is a petite dog. When she came into RAGOM it looked like she had a previous litter prior to getting pregnant again. She has the most beautiful and expressive eyes. Like most pointers she has energy and is always on the move checking out her environment. She loves to hunt for crickets or grasshoppers in the yard. It's so much fun to watch her jump like a cricket or grasshopper while trying to catch them.
Lilly enjoys meetingnew people and gets along with other dogs. She did fine with my friends 9 year old child. She is house trained and I'm working on teaching her some indoor manners. Lilly does like to stand in front of you and put her paws on your chest. Because she does this it would be best for her to be in a home with children ages 8 and up at this time. Although I do want to note that she has not done this with children. Lilly does pull when being walked with a leash. I think this is because she has places to go, see and smell!!! I am working on this also. She's a very smart girl and will learn fast.
Lilly will be spayed when her puppies are weaned and the vet says it's safe to spay her. She is a great mom!!!
What Lilly would like in her perfect forever home -
- A lap to lay on. Lilly is a lap dog that likes to snuggle with her people.
I'll get to know Lilly more as times goes on as she'll be spending less time with her puppies. I have a feeling she would love swimming in the lake. She has the natural hunting instinct in her background so a family that loves to take in the outdoors/country would be a family Lilly would like.
